As always I was absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to visit the steelworks last week, and I’d like to thank everyone who took time out of their day to show us around the rod mill and caster 5. We had some really interesting discussions.
Trade Secretary, Liz Truss has today laid legislation that will expand her powers to maintain crucial steel safeguards on products made in Scunthorpe. This follows a campaign led by myself and neighbouring MP Andrew Percy on this issue.
I am working with colleagues, the local steelworks and Ministers to preserve steel safeguards on a number of products produced locally. Consultations are ongoing and I am determined to ensure that the industry is not at a disadvantage to the rest of the world.
